87,000 Necta Sweet Tablets


PICTURE THIS......

4:20 AM, Snapper Stumbles in kitchen for first cup of coffee.

Pours creamer...opens lid to Necta Sweet.. I use 2 per cup, I like my coffee strong, HOT and Sweet.
Drop 2 tablets in coffee... tilt hand to put the 10 that fell out in my palm back in the bottle.

Bottle drops from hand, 87,000 tablets Skitter all over the counter, under the toaster and coffee pot.
(yes, I know the bottle says 500 on it)
Lid back on, stumble back to bed with my coffee.,

Bob is half finished with his and I take 2 sips and say, Does the coffee taste OK?

Bob says, mine is great. Just like usual... hummmm

I keep sipping and half way through the cup

GAAAAAAA I take a sip that is like eating a spoon of sugar. Like drinking syrup
Guess who did not STIR after she dropped the tablets in.

Had to dump that cup.....

Oh, no! Almost any time I pick up a bottle of pills, I drop it and they scatter everywhere. I often say I should just pick the bottle up and throw it to the floor!!!

I hate when this happens. But at least these are bigger then for example salt or sugar. That really goes everywhere!!

4:20am you should be in bed not throwing tablets around the kitchen. Doesn't that always happen at the wrong moment. I'd rather have no sugar than put that stuff in my tea. Coffee needs real sugar.

Good Morning Sandra, I have never heard of Necta Sweet? I assume it is like equal and sweetnlow? I like my coffee a little sweet but not too much, I use real sugar. Maybe you were up a little too early. Enjoy your day!

I'm not a coffee drinker and I take my tea strong and black, preferably Irish Breakfast. But I get the whole 4am thing!

Rose said...

have you got the tablets all picked up...did you count them to make sure you got all 87000?

Kathy said...

And as I recall saccharin tablets are teeny tiny. Not for me. I put about five grains of sugar in my coffee. I've maybe only had three or four cups since the beginning of the year. I only want coffee when I'm having breakfast out.

SweetMarie said...

is this stuff natural?? I only use sugar and drink 3 cups of coffee every morning. :) 4 am is just too early!!

I was stirring my coffee this morning and I wondered why it was so dark. It took me several minutes for it to hit me that I never put the creamer in it.
It's a fact that 500 multiplies in to 87,000 when it's released from a container :)

I think you did pretty good for 4:20AM!!

Yikes, I haven't done that in a while but I do tend to go pick something up and it mysteriously falls on the fall. I look at my hand and wonder now how did I do that? I quite putting sugar in my drinks when I was 17 and have't been able to have sweet drinks ever since, not even sweeteners.

Thanks for your sweet comment about my father-in-law Sandra. He is still in hospital and is will be there for another week-and-a-half I think, then a rehab hospital. It's a long process but he's getting there.

87,000 sounds about right.

Deb said...

Ugh not a way to start your day but does make a great blog post

EG CameraGirl said...

OH! Sorry about your too-sweet coffee!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Sorry about that....ew!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

That's one way to wake up, Sandra, and picking them up would have really woke me up for sure!

You know I fill my pills up once a month and I drop them all over too - drives me nuts - then i have to get down on the floor and pick them all up!

Ida said...

Sounds like something that would happen to me. I dropped an allergy pill the other day and managed to grab it up off the floor just as our little kitten was trying to eat it. Whew!

Sweet way to start the morning.
